UC has more than 40 clubs and organizations

Clubs & Organizations

College is your place to try something new. It is a blank slate where you have the freedom to try new things or enjoy the old. Take a chance and join a new club, or continue pursuing an interest you already had. The possibilities are endless, with more than 40 clubs and organizations to join, there’s something for everyone!

Dining Options

Between studying and sleeping, dining options are a top priority for an incoming college student. UC students have plenty to choose from when hunger strikes: Chick-fil-A and Habaneros over in the Boswell Campus Center, the TJ Roberts Dining Hall for a buffet of homestyle foods, Pete’s Eats attached to the Cumberland Inn for your gameday favorites, and three locations of the ever-so-essential Cumberland River Coffee. Explore the hours, menus, and more that will fuel your education and experience at UC.

Campus Activity Board (CAB)

Students involved with CAB help plan activities like concerts, comedians, live entertainment, ice cream socials, paint festivals and water slides for their fellow students. CAB members always have an endless amount of school spirit. If you love an exciting social life, making other people happy or just dancing to your own music, then CAB is for you.

Faith in Action

The University of the Cumberlands strives to be an institution that consistently puts faith into action.  Our faith is demonstrated through humble service to our local community and the Appalachian region.  Just as Christ modeled and encouraged servant leadership, UC inspires and equips students to do the same through various ministries and outreach activities.
